The Witch’s Cat by Catherine Wilson is quirky, mysterious and has a spooky feel.
The use of chromaticism and triplets helps add to the uncertainty while the semitone / half-step motif that culminates with six octaves of hand crossing mimics a cat walking from the top of the keyboard all the way down to the very lowest note!
